Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 53 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Saw Bought this to replace an old Craftsman saw. The saw works like a champ and the laser makes straight cuts a breeze. It is heavy duty and far less than other saws without a laser. The carrying case and on-board wrench were added bonuses. I hightly recommend this saw. March 10, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Specifications are Inaccurate! I only bought this saw because Home Depots web page said it had an electric brake under their specifications category, but it DOESN'T! Still a good saw for the price, I thought it was too cheap to have an electric brake. It also didn't come with the wrench, which it is supposed to, I read another review where someone didn't get a wrench either I thought it was a fluke, but I guess not. March 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Really Solid Worker In-store I bought a light-weight saw, which I returned a few days later. So I went online and read a bunch of reviews carefully before choosing a different saw. This one is a definite keeper. The laser is very helpful and easier on the eyes than watching my Sharpie pen line. The saw is hefty, but not unwieldy, and the plate is solid/wide enough for good support/control, even with narrow or angled cuts. The blade cuts cleanly, quickly, with no kickbacks, and the noise level is good. Would like an improvement on the locking lever for raising/lowering the blade cutting depth -- it is awkwardly located and to adjust. To do an angle cut, the locking knob is fairly tight -- hope it will loosen with use. January 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great saw This saw is lightweight, has good power, and gets the job done. The laser is pretty helpful for keeping you on track. It also comes with a carrying case, which was a big bonus to me. I'm glad I bought this saw March 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love the laser guide!! I knew the brand is one of the good ones. I have only used it a couple times the laser guide makes it so much easier to cut straight. Being a woman over 55 this is my first owned circular saw, handled fine. Wish they could make them not so loud (LOL). Works great so far. I check out a lot of saws and read many reviews and this is the one I picked. October 7, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good but laser is useless Only done one project with this so far but it seems to cut well and fast. The laser is straight and bright, however, it is not in line with the blade making it useless. You have to follow the blade as if the laser isn't even there. February 17, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Christmas Gift This was a Christmas gift for my son. He was very happy to receive it. I have experience with several circular saws (Craftsman, Delta, Porter Cable). I like the storage bag better than the plastic cases which have housed my other saws. I have the laser on one of my Craftsman saws which I use on occasion, but expect that my less-experienced son will find this feature very useful. Amperage is power and this saw was one of the best-priced 15 amp saws on the market. I expect that it will be a very good saw for an occasional do-it-yourselfer. January 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by as advertised Skill has always made reliable tools, this one is no exception! Easy to use and quite reliable. Would buy again. September 2, 2014
